We currently offer lessons for the following instruments:
Young Musicians is a small-group class for musicians ages 3 1/2 to 5 years old, and is an ideal way to get your young child ready to study piano, violin, and other instruments and a fun way to introduce your child to the Opal community. Young Musicians is designed to build a love of music and a strong musical foundation in our youngest students: children who love music and are excited to start playing an instrument but are not quite ready for individual lessons will adore this class.
A step beyond early traditional childhood music classes, Young Musicians introduces musical concepts, language, and vocabulary. Our course is designed to move students toward individual lesson readiness by including basics of playing the instrument as well as larger concepts vital to music study, like developing practicing habits and performance etiquette.
Young Musicians is a ten-week progressive class. Each session will start in mid-October or mid-January, ending with a recital musicians will love!
We welcome all interested musicians! Space is limited; please let us know if you would like to set up an interview for enrollment in this class.
